FAQ about Charging Lockers
There are 3 common types of charging ports.
- General Purpose Outlets (GPO) which is the Australian standard 3 prong outlet;
- Dual USB A ports;
- 1x USB A port and 1x USB C port.
Some less common options that are also available include;
- GPO with USB in the same compartment;
- Dual GPO.
Charging lockers can either be softwired, which means they plug into an existing wall socket; or they can be hardwired, which requires a licensed electrician to install.
All of our charging lockers are supplied softwired as standard.
Softwired (when you want to plug it into a wall socket)
For GPOs, the maximum we recommend is 10 ports per wall socket. This ensures that risk of overloading the circuit is minimal. However, it depends on what your users are charging. 10 kettles drain far more power than 10 laptops.
For USB, we can comfortably connect up to 30 compartments to a single power point.
Hardwiring can increase the amount of ports per wall connection. However, a licensed electrician is required for installation.
We are currently investigating the best way to incorporate Qi charging into locker shelves. If this is something you are interested in, please let us know.
Providing we adhere to our maximum recommendations of 10 GPOs per wall socket, we can provide lockers in long runs. This is especially beneficial in circumstances where you need tall lockers with 1 charging port each and do not want to have excessive wall sockets in use.
Our powered lockers are daisy chained together, so that in circumstances where you need the power to run in long lengths, we can supply the lockers un-linked. We then either provide installation, or you can plug them in yourself once they are in position.
Since the lockers are usually against a wall, we innovated a rear "skirt". The skirt conceals the cables from the sides, but has an open panel if you pull the locker off the wall. This ensures easy maintenance of cables or the ports themselves. It also has ventilation on the top, to allow any heat generated from charging to rise and escape.
Charging lockers feature a safety overload switch that shuts off the circuit if too many devices are attempting to be charged at once.
The electrical components are sourced from premium companies such as CMS Electracom and Elsafe Australia. Their products all strictly comply with Australian and New Zealand safety standards: AS/NZS61535. 1:2003 and AS/NZS 3112 : 2011.
The parts are supplied to us in segments that plug and play - no electrician is required in house. The only time an electrician is requires is if you opt for a hardwired solution.
